I have been cooking bbq and the fixins’ professionally and competitively for twenty years. I specialize in parties and special events, but I can cater to a gathering of any size. I not only provide catered barbecue, but also vegetarian dishes as well. Roasted or grilled veggies, mac & cheese, and grilled pineapple are just a few of the meatless sides we offer.

I was introduced to the world of barbecue in 1998 at a KCBG barbecue cookoff in Slidell, Louisana. From there I competed for several years on the circuit and then slowly moved to catering and vending. In 2009 my family and I relocated to New Orleans, La where i was able to expand on my culinary skills tremendously.

The cajun cooking and the barbecue turned out to be a fantastic mix. Now, almost 20 years later, I am proud to be taking my expertise across the southeast to serve up quality barbecue to wherever it is needed next.

The food was great. Had a teriffic time with all my friends and watching the cue cook was the best part of all. Definitely a first class experience. I will be calling Randy for all of my future events. Maybe even dinner!

Randy has catered several events for me. The most amazing event was the barbecue spread for my daughter’s pre-wedding event. We had guests from all over the country and some international destinations as well. None had ever had southern barbecue. Randy’s selections were a huge hit.
